I saw a picture of you just now

And my heart began to race

And my brain began to plan, somehow

Our fated encounter face to face

I know I've failed you, and it kills me

I understand you dislike me, but it wounds me deeply

I imagine you have moved on

But have you truly forgotten our love?

~

I miss your voice at night, and your touch

I miss my laughs when you joked

I dearly miss your warmth, your scent

I lustfully miss the taste of your lips

~

I was a fool, a unworthy person

But here I've returned to try again

I still feel it in my chest, again it burns

I hate myself each day for what I've done

Your heart is precious and it was mine

Oh what I wouldn't do to turn back time!

I was a fool, an ignorant brute

But I've changed, for me, not for you

~

I see the dark raven, it calls my name

Oh how gorgeous, and what a shame

~

I felt your tears, I felt your pain

I kne your sorrow and couldn't do a thing

It killed me, it surely did

But my love, I'm here kneeling in the red

The red blood of my demons, my regret

My selfish nature and vile fiend

My soul is dark, and you were my light

And for my bright light in darkness, I would fight

~

You were my freedom, my only escape

When you left, all my light left

I am but a rotting corpse, a ghoul

If my heart does not return, return to this fool

Carve out my pain, like you did once before

And I shall fail you, nevermore

~

I see the dark raven, it calls my name

Oh how gorgeous, and what a shame

~

The dark raven, my only hope

The beautiful creature who saved my soul

Come to me, forgive my actions

And I shall reward with eternal satisfaction

~

I see the dark raven, it calls my name

Oh how gorgeous, and what a shame
